Brentford travel to Portsmouth tonight in League One.

Uwe Rosler’s squad will be without defender Leon Legge who picked up a nasty looking injury in a 50/50 challenge during the latter stages of the Bees’ 2-0 win at Borehamwood on Saturday.

Legge’s absence means Tony Craig will return to partner Harlee Dean, whilst Academy start Alfie Mawson could be promoted to the bench.

Richard Lee performed admirably in goal again on Saturday but Simon Moore has done little wrong in the league so should return to the starting XI.

Shaleum Logan and Toumani Diagouraga were both rested at the weekend and will be hoping for a recall whilst striker Jimmy Spencer should also return to the squad.

Farid El Alagui remains a long time injury concern whilst Jake Reeves was loaned to AFC Wimbledon yesterday.

Portsmouth will welcome back former Brentford loanee keeper Mikkel Andersen who was cup-tied for their 2-0 loss at Notts County. Midfielder Scott Allan misses out due to a three match ban.

Pompey fans will be concerned that they will be managerless for tonight’s game – Michael Appleton has been strongly linked with the vacant position at Blackpool.
